many ways to do it. one way is sending a variable to your flash movie. you'll recieve this variable in in the _root timeline everytime the page load or re-load
Thank you, but I don't see how that helps unless, you recommending a variable that is linked to the time or a random number so I can tell if it changed. That seems like a bit much.
What would be another way?
The reason I am having an issue is that when hitting reload/refresh Firefox does hit the _root.onLoad function but IE doesn't. I need to reset some variables if it is pressed. hmmmm?
I hear you. I know IE has problem with the cached. It doesnt really refresh the flash movie. I would give this solution a try. Send a variable when the movie load:
ID=flaMovie WIDTH=250 HEIGHT=250>
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="flaMovie.swf">
<PARAM NAME=FlashVars VALUE="start=true>
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=medium>
<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#99CC33>
bgcolor=#99CC33 WIDTH=250 HEIGHT=250
this will send var start=true ( true is a string not a boolean). and when you get this value you know the page just loaded
Another solution could be:
movie that loads your movieinto itself, then when you want to
every time the movie start you delete the whole thing you by sending a message to _level0 to delete _levelWhatever.
hope this help
